For me it was other music and I did not really get on the bus until college (90), In HS I was into metal bands like Iron Maiden and Motorhead, and then a little of the hair metal (love the satellite hair metal station and the GD station!) I was also into the early rap scene loved public enemy, run dmc and nwa, but I had always been a huge beatles and stones fan from listening to my dad's records when I was young. So I was all over the place musically. Then in 1990 it happened, while I liked some GD, when I got the 4/29/71 Fillmore 1st gen tape from a friend that was it! While I still love the metal scene and hair metal, the gd opened up a new world of music for me that I have been exploring ever since. GD has spawned my love for bands like the black crowes (too bad they are on hiatus), Gov't Mule (from my love of ABB and The Dead, moe., north mississppi all stars and many others. So for me it was other ones->GD->everything that came after!
